Death of 30 Miners: Senate Mandates Committee on Solid Minerals to Investigate Cause

Worried by the death of 30 miners, the Nigerian Senate has asked the Committee on Solid Minerals to investigate the cause of a rockslide in Farin Doki community, Shiroro Local Government of Niger.

Recall that the rockslide buried 30 informal miners alive in a gold mining site in Niger State.

Following the adoption of a motion at plenary on Thursday in Abuja on an “urgent need to address the incident of the rockslide”, the Senate mandated the Committee to carry out a thorough investigation as to what caused the mishap.

The motion was sponsored by Mohammed Sani (APC-Niger East), who recalled that on June 3, a rockslide occurred at an open pit gold mine, resulting in 30 local informal miners being buried alive in the Farin Doki Community.
